Investigative Selfism? What’s That?

I know, it’s a weird name for a website. Let me explain it:

It’s like investigative journalism but looking inwards.

More specifically, It’s my platform with various resources that can make our lives – unlike the title of this damn website – less complicated.

But only if we seek that meaningful change.

In The End, Choose Yourself

Staying true to ourselves can be tough. Yet if we know what our values, principles, and life mission are, there is a certain peace that comes knowing this is what we have chosen.

Who am I to be sharing these resources?

My name is Justina and I have started this project in 2011 first as a (young person’s:) travel blog. But then – oh no! – it has quickly turned into “general and weird observations on life”, stories that focused on discoveries and not so much on geography.

More recently, I’ve turned it into a platform where I share the resources that I myself find insightful, something I wish I had discovered earlier, and something that I want all of my friends to know about.

This desire to embark on a journey inwards partially comes from a very simple realisation:

That I can continue hopping continents and feel all excited about that (coz it IS exciting!), but if I don’t put in the inner work, I’ll be bringing all the same old habits, limiting beliefs, and weak boundaries with me. And I never want to travel that heavy.

(and yes, it’s my mom and me in this photo on one of our investigative trips; she’s here to add some cuteness!)
